“The best day of writing is when your character says or does something and you say to yourself, ‘Holy shit! I can’t believe he just did that!’ And then you say, ‘Wait, technically I just said that. So… what’s going on here?'” -Douglas Coupland “Douglas Coupland offers a few nihilistic books the local library probably doesn’t carry” from the AV Club
That pretty much sums it up. There’s no better feeling than heading down a rabbit hole you didn’t know existed before you picked up a pen for the morning. The truly beautiful thing though, is when you go back to read what you’ve written and you’re still surprised.
I should really read Worst. Person. Ever.
